Raindrops keep falling on our heads this Sunday morning with most of the area already recording an inch to nearly two inches of rain. Since the precipitation has generally been light, streams have not overflowed and no flood advisories have been issued. But with a cutoff low pressure center intensifying off the Delmarva, our winds have picked up considerably and our temperatures have fallen. Consequently, there is a high wind advisory for areas to the southwest of the city and a winter weather advisory for the higher elevations to the west. Light snow has fallen in Frostburg and Winchester with more areas to the west, like Front Royal, Charlottesville, and Harrisonburg expecting snow into the early afternoon. Some of the higher elevations west of the Blue Ridge are under a Winter Storm Warning with upwards of 6 to 8 inches of snow possible. And if that weren't enough to scotch any springtime thoughts, windsare gusting over 30 mph today making the high temperatures in the 30s and 40s feel even chillier. It is all a reminder that winter still has a few legs left!
The low and its rain will depart tomorrow as high pressure settles in for March's last day. Look for a mostly sunny, but still breezy day on Monday with highs in the low 60s. Better still will be Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday when highs will flirt with 70 degrees. Springtime will not be denied! Enjoy your Sunday.
